    Re: Gives and holds classes.

    Everyday is an adjective. The quoted sentences need an adjective and a noun. For example, "My friend's teacher gives a class every day."

    Do you mean an adverb/adverbial?

    Re: Gives and holds classes.

    "Every day" looks like an adjective and a noun to me. I see that the combination forms an adverbial though.

    Re: Gives and holds classes.

    I'd label 'every' a determiner rather than an adjective.

    Re: Gives and holds classes.

    I don't like 'holds/gives classes/a class'.

    I'd say 'gives lessons/a lessons'.

    Re: Gives and holds classes.

    But don't you say he "holds a class" if youre the main teacher? Cause it is more then only giving lessons. But I could be wrong.

    I am not a teacher.
